The University of Northern Iowa Gallery of Art will present two new exhibitions, "A Lexicon of Looking: Mille Guldbeck" and "Line and Space: Stagings by Peter P. Goché" from Monday, Sept. 24 through Saturday, Oct. 20. Artist's lectures will be presented in KAB, room 111 and are as follows: Mille Guldbeck, Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 7 p.m.; Peter P. Goché, Tuesday Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. Receptions will follow each lecture.

Guldbeck received her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Iowa and is currently professor of painting and drawing at Bowling Green University in Bowling Green, Ohio. She has been awarded numerous fellowships and artist residencies and in the U.S. and Scandinavia, and her artworks are in permanent public art collections worldwide.

Goché received his Master of Architecture from Iowa State University is Senior Lecturer there in the Department of Architecture and Industrial Design. He is co-investigator and author of "Guidelines for Spatial Regeneration in Iowa," which was funded by the 2007 AIA Board of Knowledge Committee. His sculpture/installation titled "Water Hutch" was recently featured in Iowa Architect magazine.

Two- and three-dimensional abstract artworks will be featured in this Gallery presentation. Both Guldbeck and Goché create works that emphasize form and space with deliberate references to contemporary landscape, though the viewer may approach them formally as either non-objective or non-narrative. According to gallery director Darrell Taylor, "These exhibitions are a perfect wedding of aesthetic ideals. Guldbeck and Goché have an affinity for subtle textures and confident mark-making but achieve them in completely different ways."

Finally, the UNI Gallery of Art will continue to present the UNI Permanent Art Collection exhibition titled "Masters at Mid-Century," which opened on Aug. 20 and will run through Dec. 15.

All events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday; and noon to 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday; and by appointment.
